Abstract

In the process of issuing money to the user of an automatic teller terminal, the money is often stacked in an escrow prior to delivery to the user. Stacking in an escrow permits the stack to be rejected in an reject bin if more than one note inadvertently found its way into the stack of bills. By adding a joggler to this escrow stacker, a neat stack of bills can be delivered to the user while at the same time simplifying the feed rolls by permitting the use of two simple rolls rather than a pair of belts which would be required if a widely spread stack were to be reliably issued to the user. As shown in the figure, documents are fed from a document source through feed rollers 1 into a stack 2 on escrow plate 5. Joggler eccentric 4 rotates to oscillate joggler arm 3 against the force of spring 8.

Currency Escrow With Joggle Stacker

In the process of issuing money to the user of an automatic teller terminal, the money is often stacked in an escrow prior to delivery to the user. Stacking in an escrow permits the stack to be rejected in an reject bin if more than one note inadvertently found its way into the stack of bills. By adding a joggler to this escrow stacker, a neat stack of bills can be delivered to the user while at the same time simplifying the feed rolls by permitting the use of two simple rolls rather than a pair of belts which would be required if a widely spread stack were to be reliably issued to the user. As shown in the figure, documents are fed from a document source through feed rollers 1 into a stack 2 on escrow plate 5. Joggler eccentric 4 rotates to oscillate joggler arm 3 against the force of spring 8. Joggler arm 3 continually pats the trailing edge of the currency, so as to drive the currency snuggly into the mitt of stack-transporting rolls 6, as well as providing a reasonably rectangular stack of notes. When the stack has been completed, rolls 6 either issue the stack to the customer or send the stack to the reject bin if deflector 7 has been actuated because of a miscount. In the embodiment of this figure, the joggler eccentric 4 could also have been placed on the other side of joggler arm 3 and work against compression spring 8 to thereby joggle documents of differing lengths without special adjustment.
